Leading Social Change in Student Organizations
Leading Social Change in Student Organizations is built on the framework for educating and developing students to be effective agents of social change. Recognizing that students want to be involved and engaged on their prospective campus, students will acquire the fundamental knowledge and skills related to leadership, collaboration, and identity in developing them into socially conscious leaders capable of creating sustainable social change. The overarching outcome is to enable students to explore their leadership style and recognize effective methods of collaborating with the campus, community and factors across the globe to enact social change.
